Nice new place. They call it River Place... They should call it Highway Place. Our room overlooked not a river, but a freeway entrance about 60 feet away. Asked to change rooms. No luck. If you are choosing to stay here, first be aware that you are not downtown and second be aware that it is not on a scenic... More

Pros: Location, room size, breakfast Cons: Location, older facilities Read on for more: Any relatively experienced traveler knows that hotels like to stick "upgrading" words on their names- in this case, "Downtown". The hotel is certainly within what could technically be called "downtown" but that doesn't mean it's anywhere near the high-rises, 1st Street, etc. But that also isn't a... More

I stayed here with 2 of my friends for a conference in July of 2013. The facility was nice, the rooms were as expected, but the location was much further from "downtown Portland" than we were led to believe from the description. While the area around the riverfront was lovely it was not very close to downtown.

The hotel was close to the river and a great river walk. The hotel provided a complimentary hot breakfast each morning with many choices. Complimentary dinners were available several days a week, too. My only objection was the location of the hotel. It sits at the convergence of several elevated highway systems and I found the noise level was higher... More

Dear 907-Jeanne, Thank you for taking the time to review us on Trip Advisor. I am glad you were able to enjoy our renowned hot breakfast, and enjoyed the events in the evening. They call Portland the "Bridge City", and we get to share part of that here. It's unfortunate our best views of the river are also facing the... More

We stayed two nights at this Residence Inn during a weekend visit to the great city of Portland. We had two rooms for our family. Each room was actually two rooms, with a living room/kitchenette in one room and a king size bed/bathroom in the second room. The full size fridge/microwave kitchen area is great when you have children along.... More

Dear KathiM17, Thank you for the excellent review. I am very delighted our hotel was the perfect fit for your family. We love the streetcar system, and how easy it is to get around without a car.

Overall I had a good experience at this hotel. My suite was a little dated, and some of the furnishings were very scuffed. Windows don't open, but my guess is that is to keep down the noise from the highway which is just outside. The location is sort of on the river, but really next to an elevated highway system,...

We will be starting to redo our lobby and public space in the next couple months, then all the rooms will get a full make over. I sincerely hope you come check it out when we're all done. Thank...

I stay in a Marriott Hotel numerous times a month. I am a Platinum Elite Marriott Rewards Member so I know quite a bit about Marriotts and I don't think I'll return to this one. The location is average but the charge for parking was absurd as was the $15 fee just to have a roll-away bed brought to my... More

This Marriott Residence is an excellent choice for Portland. The full kitchen is great and the facilities are clean even if a wee bit worn. The staff are friendly and helpful. I would have given it four buttons if they had given us the room we booked. Although they allow pets, they keep rooms/floors for those of us with allergies... More

I went to Portland for a work event. This was a great hotel - clean, staff was excellent. Location was close to restaurants. Parking was a little expensive but then I think all hotel parking is expensive. Happy Hour provided at the hotel w/appetizers and beer/wine. Room was very nice & clean.
